Smart Trips Month and Knoxville By Cycle

The 2008 Knoxville By Cycle ride series starts May 17th, with a bike ride in conjunction with the Get Outdoors Festival at World's Fair Park. Details are available on our website at http://www.knoxtrans.org/plans/bikeprog/summer.htm and I've listed the series dates below.

Also, Smart Trips Month kicks off May 1st. We have a ton of fun events and promotions going. If you pledge to use an alternative to driving alone during May, you can get an Undriver's License that comes with benefits from local businesses. The 3rd annual Pedal Vs Metal Race between bicyclists and motorists is May 9th--will the bicyclists win again? Bike to Work Day is May 16th, and there are plenty of roadside bike repair classes to choose from during the month. And there's much more! May also kicks off our special, SmartFIX 40-influenced Commuter Challenge. We'll be giving away $10,000 in prizes to people who use alternative transportation to work at least 5 days a month.
